Praying - Agreement

There are many conditions for answered prayer given in the New Testament. I'm not going to pretend that we will cover them all in this series. But hopefully the ones we do cover will be an encouragement to you in your prayer life.

Today we are thinking about the condition of agreement.

 Mt 18:19 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

This verse occurs in the context of church discipline so the primary emphasis here is on two agreeing about the discipline of a brother in Christ. But there is the broader concept that it pleases God for Christian brothers to be in agreement in prayer. There is definitely a benefit for Christians to gather together for prayer. The New Testament believers "continue steadfastly in ... prayer" (Acts 2:42)

So let me encourage you to look at your life routine and make sure that you are sharing prayer needs with others and praying with others for God to accomplish His glory in your life.
